Head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine Arseniy Avakov on his Facebook page accused the headquarters of presidential candidates of bribing and stirring up hatred. Earlier, on February 9, several activists were detained in Kiev, later the radicals also fired at Avakov’s house from fireworks.
In the message, Avakov describes how people come to the speeches of various presidential candidates with brilliant green and weapons to arrange provocations. “Gloomy personalities in pockets with brass knuckles and green bottle. Mined cars, agitator battles, bribing and counter-buying, ”writes the minister.
According to Avakov, what is happening is a consequence of the “work of the staffs” of presidential candidates who “utterly unwind the spiral of hatred in society”. He urged politicians to “stop” and lead “fair competition.”
Earlier, on February 9, several activists were detained in Kiev , who were holding a rally dedicated to the Kherson City Council official Kate Gandzyuk, on the square where presidential candidate Yulia Tymoshenko spoke. In addition, as noted by UNIAN, activists later fired from the fireworks installations of Avakov’s own house, chanting the slogan “Who ordered Katya Gandzyuk?” With lighted flares.
In November, activists also held a protest action at Avakov’s house, demanding his resignation because of unsolved murders and, in particular, the death of Gandzyuk, who was doused with acid. On suspicion of the murder of Gandzyuk, Ukrainian police detained five people who were former participants in the antiterrorist operation (ATO) in the Donbas. Four of them admitted guilt.
